Document Description
The project's primary purpose is to restore access for anadromous salmonids between Humboldt Bay and Rocky Gulch. In 2004, during Phase I of the project, an existing tidegate was replaced with a fish friendly "muted" tide gate to provide un-restricted access for anadromous salmonids between Humboldt Bay and Rocky Gulch. Phase II will restore aggraded channel reaches above the tidegate to provide access for anadromous salmonids to upper Rocky Gulch. A secondary purpose of the project is to enhance and expand estuarine and freshwater habitats in the lower most mile of Rocky Gulch. Achieving both of these project purposes will produce a net benefit to ecosystem functions and values in Rocky Gulch, and contribute to the recovery of three threatened fish species; coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), steelhead (O. mykiss), and tidewater goby (Eucylogobius newberryl) as well as a species of concern coastal cutthroat trout (O. clarki clarki), in Humboldt County. No new structures or other development is proposed. The parcels are currently vacant and used for livestock grazing.
